Thomas County Law Lyrics – Iron & Wine


Thomas County Law’s got a crooked tooth
Every traffic light is red when it tells the truth
The church bell isn’t kidding when it cries for you
Nobody looks away when the sun goes down

Thomas County Road takes you where it will
Someone’s singing on the far side of other hills
There’s nowhere safe to bury all the time I’ve killed
Nobody looks away when the sun goes down

There’s a couple ways to cross Thomas County Line
You can’t see beyond the trees, they’re too tall and wide
And I never seem to see around my brother’s wife
Nobody looks away when the sun goes down

There are castles for kings, there are birds without wings
I could whine ’bout it all, but I won’t

Thomas County Law’s got a crooked tooth
There ain’t a mother with a heart less than black and blue
When they hold ’em to the light, you can see right through
Every dreamer falls asleep in their dancing shoes
I may say I don’t belong here, but I know I do

Nobody looks away when the sun goes down
Nobody looks away when the sun goes down..
